Cinnamon Toast And The End Of The World

by Janet E Cameron

Hachette Ireland | January 21, 2014 | Trade Paperback

Cinnamon Toast And The End Of The World is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
Stephen Shulevitz remembers the end of the world. Two o''clock in the morning on a Saturday night, in Riverside, Nova Scotia when he realises he has fallen in love - with exactly the wrong person.

There are no volcanic eruptions. No floods or fires. Just Stephen, watching TV with his best friend, realising that life, as he knows it, will never be the same.

The smart move would be to run away - from Riverside, his overbearing hippie mother, his distant pot-smoking father - and especially his feelings. But then Stephen begins to wonder: what would happen if he had the courage to face the end of the world head on?

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poignant I bought this yesterday and picked up late afternoon today and finished this evening. This is a poignant and sometimes sad story. If you are a child of the 80's (especially if you are a LGBT child of the 80's) this will touch you in a specific way. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and so very glad I picked it up. This story resonated for me and I felt connected to it in ways that surprised me. I highly recommend this book its an amazing coming of age story that I think captures an era.
